Some have deemed love a great weakness,
others will call it a strength;
I shall remain undecided
and study at greater length.
Surely one could spend a life –
at least a number of days –
seeking to learn every nuance
of love and all of its ways.
Say that it is work in progress,
as I test hypotheses,
doings of birds and of bees.
But I should have larger samples,
new subjects would be terrific;
volunteer, please, I do promise
to keep it all scientific!
